I am an active dog owner in the city of halifax. Halifax is NOT a dog friendly city and evryone complains and does nothing about it!!! we have to get together and voice our issues!!!! This summer if you live downtown or the north end the only places you can bring your dog are citidel or the commons. I know in the commons you must keep your dog on leash so we at least have citidel hill too fall back on for a healthy game od chuck-it. BUT I have recently been informed that all dogs must be kept on leash there aswell. Leaving us with no place with in walking distance for the many many many dogs living in this city. SO is the municipality telling us we must get into our gas guzzling cars and drive somewhere to play a game of fetch???? Well thats not very eco-friendly. What about the rest of us who live in the city so we dont HAVE to have a car. I mean its bad enough its redicilously hard to find a dof friendlt place to live. we cant just let this happen. This city if horrrrrible for having pets. its bad enough the city voted to keep out cats locked up all year round because of some poop in peoples gardens. I draw the line at my dog. im not keeping him indoors at at arms reach 24/7. LET OUR PUPS PLAY FETCH!!!!!!!!!
